Why You Should Be Using A Jade Roller

With so many beauty tools on the market, it’s hard to keep track of them all and what one’s really work. But jade roller’s are truly a must have in your beauty routine. They are unique by providing both health and beauty benefits. And they are inexpensive, easy to use and only take a couple of minutes a day.

Jade rollers date back to seventh-century China, and crystals have been used in skin care for thousands of years. The crystal isn’t just aesthetically pleasing, but most of the benefits come from the fact that it’s cold to the touch (and even more so if you store it in the fridge). The cold restricts blood flow to a particular area, and pressure pushes fluid, known as lymph, to the lymph nodes, which process it and filter out toxins, temporarily reducing puffiness. Facial massage also stimulates circulation, making your skin appear brighter and firmer. 

The key to getting in on the depuffing, glow-enhancing benefits is knowing how to use jade rollers correctly. The goal is to push the fluid trapped in your skin cells toward your lymph nodes.

How do you use a jade roller? Jade rolling can help facial oils and serums penetrate the skin more deeply. I recommend rolling after cleansing and applying serums or oils, but before applying makeup. Start at the center of your chin, rolling out and up toward your ear. Then move the roller up to the side of your mouth and repeat. Repeat again, starting this time at the side of the nose. Roll it under your eye, moving it horizontally toward your temple, and repeat it on your eyelid. On your forehead, roll it up from your brow to your hairline. Then roll it horizontally out toward your temple. Finally, repeat on the other side of your face.

How often should you roll? Depends on what you’re going for! To reduce inflammation and improve skin tone, we recommend rolling twice a day: once in the morning and once at night.
